What causes foot corn?

Foot corns are a common foot condition that develops when the skin on the foot becomes thick and hard due to pressure and friction.

Ill-Fitting Shoes

Wearing shoes that are too tight, too loose, or do not provide adequate support can cause foot Corns and Calluses. Ill-fitting shoes can create pressure and friction on the foot, which can lead to the development of Corns and Calluses.

High Heels

High heels put pressure on the ball of the foot, which can cause foot Corns and Calluses to develop in that area. The narrow toe box of high heels can also cause Corns and Calluses to form on the toes.

Foot Deformities

Foot deformities, such as hammertoes, can cause Corns and Calluses to develop. The deformity causes pressure and friction on a specific area of the foot, leading to the development of Corns and Calluses.

Repetitive Motion

Repetitive motion, such as running or walking long distances, can cause foot Corns and Calluses to develop due to the constant pressure and friction on the foot.

Abnormal Gait

An abnormal gait, such as rolling your foot inwards or outwards when walking, can cause foot Corns and Calluses to develop due to the uneven pressure and friction on the foot.

Age

As we age, the skin on our feet becomes thinner and less elastic, making it more susceptible to pressure and friction. This can cause foot Corns and Calluses to develop more easily in older adults.
